Organizational Wellness - Creating a Healthy Workplace Culture

What comprises a healthy organization? An organization that is filled with leaders, staff, leaders and volunteers who are engaged, satisfied, productive, and effective. Healthy cultures reduce workplace conflict, turnover and burnout. In the past, focus has been on treating individual wellness needs without considering the workplace environment. If the organization is unhealthy the individual will struggle to maintain their personal wellness. We need to treat both the trees and the forest with equal veracity. This training provides organizational leaders with research based assessments and tools to enable a desirable culture for productivity and sustainability. Full day training.
